Project 110: Week 6

We had a great Thanksgiving. Good food, family getting together, Black Ops and poker with John, his brothers and nephews. I've managed to keep it consistent this week and hold back as often as Ican with rice and carbs in general. And we went on two walks this week since it's a four day weekend. I've started to notice that I can now wear some of my tank tops without the very visible rolls. They haven't gone away but they have gone down. Naks.

My progress seems slow but it's alright. At least I'm seeing something. John's noticed some changes too. And I'm not starving myself.

Looking at the past weeks' food logs, I've observed the following small, doable and realistic adjustments can make a difference:

1. Portion control. I'd eat about half the amount I used to. Maybe once or twice a week I'd have my usual regular meal but the rest of the time I try to cut back and stop when I feel full.

2. Cutting back on carbs particularly rice. I didn't say 'avoid' cause I still had some rice, bread and potatoes here and there but I've cut back significantly.

3. Eating regularly. Whether it be a bowl of cereal (no milk) or nuts, I eat something every few hours so I don't binge later on.

4. Not eating just because it's breakfast, lunch or dinner time. If I'm not hungry, I don't eat and when I am, I do.

5. Having some form of exercise. A big chunk of my work involves me sitting in front of the computer. I'm thankful that we're back to our regular walks even if it's just once or twice a week. Something is always better than nothing.

Happy Tuesday!
